Avaya yesterday announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Radvision, a provider of videoconferencing and telepresence technologies over IP and wireless networks, for $230 million.

Avaya said the purchase will allow it to provide customers with an integrated and interoperable suite of high-definition video collaboration products, with the ability to plug and play multiple mobile devices.

Upon closing, Radvision’s enterprise video infrastructure will be integrated with Avaya’s Aura Unified Communications (UC) platform.

Radvision's portfolio includes a range of videoconferencing products and technologies, including standards-based applications; open infrastructure; and endpoints for ad-hoc and scheduled videoconferencing with room-based systems, desktop and mobile consumer devices.

"With this acquisition, we will seek to extend videoconferencing to any device, anytime, anywhere, making it as easy as a phone call," said Kevin Kennedy, president and CEO of Avaya.
